“Good Value Hotel with very Helpful front Desk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

We stayed one night here to be convenient for an early morning flight from Bologna airport. The hotel was very good value and as all HI expresses- clean and modern. The front desk was exceptionally helpful giving us a map of the centre (10 mins away)and showing us where the interesting tourist sights would be. Although the hotel is in an out of town shopping/industrial park it is only 10 mins to the fantastic old centre of Bologna where the food and wines on offer were very good and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: None- we had a good room but it was quiet anyway as it was a weekend

Superb room with excellent bathroom. Nicely efficient, quiet air conditioning. Great breakfast included in the room rate.
I cannot believe the quality of this hotel given the price we paid. The hotel is located close to the exhibition centre (and being August no trade fairs were taking place) so perhaps we were offered a special rate? Either way, we will certainly stay here again!

I can't believe how fantastic this hotel was for the price we paid! Much nicer than I expected from the on-line pictures and reviews. This hotel was very modern, very well-run and efficient, very comfortable, and had a great breakfast. It is located outside the centro, convenient to the highway (It was a stopover for us, just someplace to sleep for the night, thought the historical center was only a 10 minute drive away. We went there to eat dinner.) It is in a commercial area, so lots of stores around; this was nice after spending so much time in "historical" Italy!

Staff at this hotel was friendly and accommodating. Our WiFi was free as we are frequent guests, and the speed was above average.

Location is great if you need to travel on, less so if you want to go downtown. A taxi is around 15 EUR, public transport is not a serious option.

Rooms are basic but clean and the bed is surprisingly good.

Stayin the the Holliday Inn Express Bologna in June 2012 with 2 collegues for a business trip, we actually checked in after staying in the Best Western City Hotel, but since that hotel had centrally controlled A/C (at 25oC), sleep was impossible there, so we checked out after 2 days. The Holliday Inn is located pretty far from the historic area of the city, it has a stip mall complex across the street. The hotel itself is pretty old and needs renovation, but the rooms were clean (although small) and most important the A/C cooled fine! The breakfast buffet is pretty basic, but OK. Wi-Fi wasn´t included in the room cost, had to pay for it separately.

I regularly say in this hotel to visit my girlfriend and I am always happy with the service and quality.
The hotel has a good location close to the Autostrada and Airport. A short drive from the city centre.
The rooms are nice, sometimes the shower doors are loose, and the breakfast has plenty of choice.
I normally arrive in the early hours after a 5 hour drive and the night porter is always efficient with my booking and friendly.
The only problem I had was a fire alarm at 0800 Sunday morning, the hotel was not the main fault for this, but still after 3 hours sleep this was a major problem for me.
